BREAKING2 On 6 May 2017, three runners attempted to break the two-hour marathon barrier. Eliud Kipchoge

ran the fastest marathon in history at 2 hours and 25 seconds. Since 2014, our team has supported

the mission of breaking the two-hour marathon barrier. We will never stop pursuing what

some believe to be unimaginable—we continue to push forward.

THE ATTEMPT They said it's a barrier that can't be broken, so why even try?

But that's the thing about barriers; when you push them,

when you run them down, you redefine what's possible.

THE INNOVATION The Zoom Series includes: the Nike Vaporfly Elite, a

finely-tuned racer built to the Breaking2 runners' exact

specifications; Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, a state-of-the-art

statement of pure speed; the Nike Zoom Fly, a lightweight

high-velocity racer or trainer; and the new Nike Air Zoom

Pegasus 34, an ultra-responsive everyday and race-day shoe.

THE PREPARATION Weather. Nutrition. Recovery. Genetics. Speed is

influenced by almost infinite variables. Here's how our

team approached finding the ideal state of them all.
